Most convertible tablet-style laptops have one screen. When it’s facing the keyboard you can use the device like a laptop. But you can also rotate the display to face away from the keyboard and close the lid to use the computer like a tablet.

Then there’s the SeedTronic Seedbook. This laptop has two displays, one on the front of the lid, and a second on the back. So all you have to do is open the lid to use the computer like a laptop or close it to switch screens and use the device in tablet mode.

SeedTronic Seedbook

SeedTronic isn’t the only company working on this type of laptop design. Asus showed off a similar prototype called the TAICHI recently. But this type of dual-screen convertible is still the exception rather than the rule.

Netbook News got a chance to check out a Seedbook prototype at Computex last week, and reports the front will have a standard LED display, while the the rear-facing screen will be an OLED display featuring a touch panel with support for 5-point multitouch.

The prototype is a little boxy, but SeedTronic plans to make the laptop a little thinner and lighter before the Seedbook is released.

The computer has 4 USB 2.0 ports, VGA and HDMI ports, mic and headphone jacks, a card reader, and Ethernet port.

SeedTronic has offices in Hong Kong and Brazil… so I don’t expect to see the Seedbook in the US anytime soon.
